Hey y'all! Hope you're enjoying the cooler weather and staying dry 😊 • Today's post is #7 in the series I've been doing on CHEMICALS TO AVOID in your daily personal care products. • Today we'll focus on Moisturizers for the body (including lotions and sunscreens) • Here's the list of ingredients to avoid when choosing a body moisturizer: . ( 1 ) SODIUM LAURYL SULPHATE (SLS) AND SODIUM LAURETH SULPHATE (SLES) . ( 2 ) PARABENS . ( 3 ) FRAGRANCES OR PARFUM . ( 4 ) NITROSAMINES DEA, TEA OR MEA . ( 5 ) QUANTERIUM 15, DMDM HYDRANTOIN, GERMALL AND SUTTOCIDE . ( 6 ) PETROLATUM, PETROLEUM, MINERAL OILS, FARAFIFIN OIL OR LIQUID PARAFFIN . ( 7 ) POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL (PEG) . ( 8 ) SILOXANES AND SILICONES . ( 9 ) BUTYLATED HYDROXYANIZOLE, BUTYLATED HYDROXYTOULENE (BHA & BHT) • Alcohol and EOs (too highly concentrated) can also irritate sensitive skin, as well as exfoliating AHA's and BHA's. • "Sunscreens containing oxybenzone should be avoided on children as it is a hormone disrupting chemical that may trigger allergic reactions." -EWG • I suggest Jojoba Oil as a body moisturizer as it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave my skin too oily. Jojoba Oil also works well to blend and spread if you already have a natural body moisturizer that you use. • I use @bajabasics available on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2P0Cnc7 • Do y'all have any body moisturizers that contain safe ingredients that would be a good fit for mixing with Jojoba Oil? I'd love to know! 😊 • Hope you're having a Happy Tuesday, • 💜 Ashley • • • #body #bodylotion #aromatherapy #skincareroutine #cleanlotion #cleanfragrance #fragrance #cleanskincare #skin #skincare #cleancosmetics #BajaBasics #jojobaoil #jojoba #rosewater #rosehipoil #NaturallyNourishing #holistic #holistichealth #organiclife #naturalbeauty #atx #cleanproducts #healthandwellness #checklist #dirtydozen #personalcare #selfcare

"The average woman uses 12 products, containing 168 different ingredients daily." -EWG .. ^^Facts like this continue to inspire my mission to simplify healthy hair and skincare and to expose which of these ingredients belong no where near your body! .. Ok...off my soap box and on to Post #6 :) This is part of a series I've been doing on CHEMICALS TO AVOID in your daily personal care products. .. #6 in this series is DEODORANT (including antiperspirants, cologne and perfume) Here is the list of ingredients to avoid: .. -1- PARABENS . -2- FRAGRANCES OR PARFUM . -3- NITROSAMINES DEA, TEA OR MEA . -4- QUENTERIUM 15, DMDM HYDRANTOIN, GERMALL AND SUTTOCIDE . -5- POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL (PEG) . -6- SILOXANES AND SILICONES . -7- TRICLOSAN . -8- ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, SD ALCOHOL 40 AND ETHYL ALCOHOL . -9- ALUMINUM, ALUMINUM CHLORIDE, ALUMINUM CHLORHYDRATE ..

Hey y'all Happy Monday! How was your ACL weekend?? •• Today we're am so excited to share with y'all a new skin smoothing recipe we've been experimenting with - it's called Jojoba Coffee Scrub! 🌿☕️ •• INGREDIENTS • ( 1 ) ½ cup coffee grounds (can be previously brewed. If using previously brewed grounds, allow to dry completely before mixing) • ( 2 ) 1 cup fine white sugar or salt • ( 3 ) ½ cup JOJOBA OIL 👉LINK IN @bajabasics BIO👈 • ( 3 ) 16 oz. Mason jar or similar jar with lid • ( 4 ) Optional: 1 tsp cinnamon •• STEP 1 Combine coffee grounds, sugar, and cinnamon in the jar, add lid, and shake to combine. • STEP 2 Remove the lid from the jar and add the Jojoba oil. Use a spoon to stir so the coffee ground mixture is saturated. If it’s too oily, add more sugar until it’s the consistency you desire. • TO USE This scrub is messy, so I recommend standing in your tub while you scrub or on newspaper. Dampen skin, then use small amounts of the scrub and scrub in circular motions on arms, legs and torso (Pro tip: it’s also great for your bum!). Rinse well! •• What are your skin smoothing tips?? Please do share 😊 •• Hope you all have a great start to your week! ☀️ •• #smoothskin #scrub #coffee #recipe #coffeescrub #skinscrub #naturalbeauty #naturallynourishing #bajabasics #jojoba #jojobaoil #organiclife #holistic #holistichealth #healthyhair #diy #happymonday #acl #austin #atx #healthyskin

Hey heyyy, how was your weekend??! ... Today on this beautiful Monday I present you with post #4 - In case you missed the last few, this is a series on CHEMICALS TO AVOID in your daily personal care products! .. #4 is FACIAL MOISTURIZERS (including anti-aging cream and lotions. For this post, I'm just going to list the ingredients. If you want ALL the details on WHY YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE THESE ON YOUR SKIN, check out my last post on facial cleansers. .. Without further ado, Here's the list of ingredients in moisturizers to avoid: .. Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) . Parabens . Fragrances or parfum . Nitrosamines DEA, TEA or MEA . Quanterium-15, DMDM hydrantoin, Diaziolidinyl Urea (Germall), Sodium hydroxymethyl glycinate (Suttocide) . PETROLATUM, PETROLEUM, MINERAL OILS, FARAFFIN OIL OR LIQUID PARAFIN (Stay tuned, I'll cover these in detail in a future post) . Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) . Triclosan . Siloxanes & Silicones (cyclotetrasiloxane, cyclopentasiloxane, cyclohexasiloxane, cyclomethinicone) . Butylated Hydroxyanisole, Butylated hydroxytoulene (BHA or BHT) .. **If you have sensitive skin, I'd recommend reducing the # of times/day you wash your face and use a very gentle cleanser or use the oil cleaning method with @bajabasics Jojoba oil** .. Also avoid frequent long hot showers or baths and use only lukewarm water on your face. You might also want to consider a chlorine filter for your shower! .. What are you using to moisturize your face these days?? Is it working for you or are you looking to try something new??! .. Let me know, I love hearing from y'all :) .. #skincareroutine #cleanskincare #skin #skincare #moisturizers #bajabasics #jojobaoil #jojoba #naturallynourishing #holistic #holistichealth #organiclife #naturalbeauty #atx #cleanproducts #healthandwellness #checklist #dirtydozen #personalcare #selfcare

FRIENDS! HAPPY FRIDAY!! What are your plans for the weekend?? I hope you're all getting out and about to enjoy this cooler weather 😊 •• Here is post #3 on CHEMICALS TO AVOID in your daily personal care products. I'm doing a NEW POST SERIES covering everything from cosmetics to deodorant to moisturizers. •• Today's list is for FACIAL CLEANSERS (including anti-acne cleansers) Here's a list of to avoid when purchasing face wash: •• Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) - These detergents/foaming agents are very drying to the skin and they can strip away your protective oils. This can cause irritation and weaken the skin's barrier function. •• Parabens (Including - Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben and Butylparaben) - These preservatives are found in most mass produced personal care products and are also associated with skin irritation and are suspect to interfering with hormone function. •• Fragrances or parfum - These are among the top 5 allergens in the world! These words are the "catch all" for a whole group of undisclosed cehmicals that include phalates and other synthetics that can cause skin irritation, allergies, skin reactions, asthma, interfere with hormones and even cause cancer. •• Nitrosamines DEA, TEA or MEA •• Quanterium-15, DMDM hydrantoin, Diaziolidinyl Urea (Germall), Sodium hydroxymethyl glycinate (Suttocide) •• Isopropyl alcohol, SD alcohol 40 and ethyl alcohol •• Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) •• Triclosan •• Siloxanes & Silicones (cyclotetrasiloxane, cyclopentasiloxane, cyclohexasiloxane, cyclomethinicone) •• Butylated Hydroxyanisole, Butylated hydroxytoulene (BHA or BHT) - These can increase the skin's sun sensitivity by up to 50%! •• **You can also try a more natural facial cleansing option like The Oil Cleansing Method - I did a post on this recently and I use @bajabasics #jojobaoil ! •• Also try or raw #honey and warm water to cleanse or as a spot treatment for acne. •• Dead Sea Salt with warm water or a finely ground oatmeal mask/cleanser are other options. Also consider cleansing with just a damp Microfibre cloth or Konjac Sponge. •• #skincare #organicskincare #holistic #naturallynourishing

Hey y'all! Here is post #2 on CHEMICALS TO AVOID in your daily personal care products. I'm doing a NEW POST SERIES covering everything from cosmetics to deodorant to moisturizers 😊 •• Today's focus is SHAMPOO & CONDITIONERS (including anti-dandruff shampoos) Here is a list of chemicals to avoid in the shower: •• [ 1 ] Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) • [ 2 ] Parabens (Including - Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben and Butylparaben) • [ 3 ] Fragrances or parfum • [ 4 ] Nitrosamines DEA, TEA or MEA • [ 5 ] Quanterium-15, DMDM hydrantoin, Diaziolidinyl Urea (Germall), Sodium hydroxymethyl glycinate (Suttocide) • [ 6 ] Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) ••• ^^I covered these in detail in my last post on body washes^^ ••• [ 7 ] Isopropyl alcohol, SD alcohol 40 and ethyl alcohol - These unnecessary alcohols have no nourishing qualities and can lead to dry, flaky skin while exacerbating acne • [ 8 ] Triclosan - Linked to abnormal endocrine system/thyroid hormone signaling and weakening of the immune system. Children exposed at an early age have an increased chance of developing allergies, asthma and eczema. • [ 9 ] Coal Tar - Effective treatment for psoriasis and eczema, but it contains potentially carcinogenic compounds • [ 10 ] Siloxanes & Silicones (cyclotetrasiloxane, cyclopentasiloxane, cyclohexasiloxane, cyclomethinicone) - Some types of silicones (siloxanes) may be harmful to the environment and can cause acne and congestion. They can also interfere with cell renewal and block nutritious ingredients from absorbing. •• **Consider these alternatives: Primal Life Organics, 100% Pure, Bentonite Clay, Goats Milk Soap and Castile Soap + Coconut Milk.** •• **Mild detergent alternatives to SLS and SLES are: Yucca Extract, Decyl Glucoside and Decyl Polyglucose** •• WHAT ALTERNATIVES DO YOU SUGGEST in place of mainstream shampoos and conditioners??!! I'd LOVE to hear from y'all 😊 •• #skincareroutine #cleanskincare #skin #skincare #bajabasics #jojobaoil #jojoba #naturallynourishing #holistic #holistichealth #organiclife #naturalbeauty #atx #cleanproducts #healthandwellness #checklist #dirtydozen #personalcare #selfcare

This one is going to focus on which chemicals to avoid in your daily personal care products. We'll cover everything from cosmetics to deodorant to moisturizers 😊 •• Let's kick it off with BODY WASHES (including shower gels, liquid soaps and baby soaps) Here is a list of chemicals to avoid in the shower: • Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) • Fragrances or parfum • Nitrosamines DEA, TEA or MEA • Quanterium-15, DMDM hydrantoin, Diaziolidinyl Urea (Germall), Sodium hydroxymethyl glycinate (Suttocide) • Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) • Isopropyl alcohol, SD alcohol 40 and ethyl alcohol • Butylated hydroxyanisole, butylated hydroxytoulene (BHA or BHT) •• Remember that ingredients are listed in order from highest to lowest concentration.

Thank you @kristenbrasseaux for sharing your story with us and revealing (through your own journey) the importance of investing in clean alternatives when it comes to hair and skincare and all other household products: •• "For me, two years of questionable health problems came to a head the night I lost my vision for more than an hour—which led to MRIs and test after test. I had some of the best doctors telling me they were positive it was a pituitary tumor, as that diagnosis would have lined up with all of my symptoms. It ended up being inflammation disguised as a tumor, and I suddenly started down the road of research. I became aware of how poorly America regulates what we put in and on our bodies, and my body finally told me it had had enough. I’m so thankful I was put in situation where I was forced to educate myself. Once I realized how detrimental streamlined brands were to my wellbeing, there was no going back for me. • I have transformed all skincare, hair care, household cleaning products and more to clean alternatives that I’m so happy to say are safe for my family’s health. • I love not having to worry about what I’m using when I put my jojoba oil on my face every night. I see a difference in my skin tone and have smoother, healthier skin than I’ve ever had. In one day I have two separate compliments about my “glowing” skin and know the difference is my oil. I can’t wait to add the rose water to my routine as well!" • - Kristen Brasseaux •• #testimonial #skincareroutine #cleanskincare #skin #skincare #bajabasics #jojobaoil #jojoba #naturallynourishing #holistic #holistichealth #organiclife #naturalbeauty #cleanproducts #anti -inflammatory #happythursday #preachit #healthandwellness

Recently I had the opportunity to answer a few questions by @the.curious.hippy from @thecommunespace. In this article you can learn more about myself and my Baked Livingness adventure. I was blessed to collaborated with Jess and The Commune Space on their “Launch Party” back in June (2018) where we celebrated with laughs, dancing and of course yummy food. I served up a spread of scrumptious and yummy wraps, a warm salad and delicious curry for guests on the night. #partyforgood The Commune Space are unique and refreshing event planning super hero's who style, plan and create jaw-dropping events that puts the hip (rather than the hippie) into being green. By infusing their passion for sustainable, eco-friendly event planning, Jess brings experiences that WOW while also doing a little something for this planet we call home.

✨☀️ This is a photo I took a few weekends back of my Nan Millie's garden. Exactly how she left it and of course blooming! ☀️ I am particularly like Millie where we both share a unique attention to detail, colourful sense of humour and a deep love for all things fun. 🌹🌸✨I am no gardener like Nan but I now have the will to re-learn all that Nan did show me. ☀️✨ So from now on with the help from Nan's and @yellowdaisies02 's established blooms I will be growing my own editable flowers 😉🌸🌺🌹💐 #lifeofabaker #nansgarden #bealwaysblooming #edibleflowers

Hey! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend and if you're in Austin...staying dry! As you may already know, I'm currently taking courses online and working on my Integrative Health Coaching Certification through IIN. •• One of the topics we've been studying lately is how the mind and our beliefs affect our physical health. •• I came across a wonderful little article and video about The Health Benefits of Meditation: https://www.artofliving.org/us-en/meditation/meditation-for-you/benefits-of-meditation •• This article reminded me that emotions often surface on the skin. The face can be a tell tale sign of what is happening internally. I know for me personally (despite my very intentional healthy skincare routine) I still get breakouts when I'm experiencing negative emotions like stress and anxiety. •• Basically, what I'm getting at is that meditation = reduced stress = clearer skin 😊🌿🌎🌻🌱☀️ •• What is your go to practice when you're having a crazy day? DO YOU HAVE A DAILY MEDITATION PRACTICE?? •• Please share! 🙏🏻💜 •• #meditation #dailymeditation #practice #meditationpractice #yoga #yogaeveryday #stressmanagement #stressrelief #naturallynourishing #bajabsics #naturalbeauty #organiclife #holistic #holistichealth #mindfulness

Hey y'all...HAPPY FRIDAY! My recipe for this week is a Moisturizing Jojoba Coconut Shampoo! •• What you'll need is: >> 1 Cup Shampoo Base - I recommend Desert Organics Fragrance Free >> 1/2 Cup Canned Coconut Milk - Yes! Believe it or not, coconut milk is perfect for adding moisture and restoring dry and damaged hair. •• >> 2 Teaspoons Jojoba Oil - I recommend @bajabasics NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON! (link in bio) This is my favorite oil for moisturizing the hair and skin because it absorbs easily and is non-greasy. •• >> 20 drops Orange EO >> 20 drops Tea Trea EO >> 20 Drops Essential Oils of your choice! Optional, but I'd recommend any of the following: Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Tangerine and Jasmine. •• Any combination of these oils is great for skin and hair. I like these oils because they are cleansing and full of antioxidants that fight against damage. This shampoo blend will be great for cleaning and nourishing your hair and scalp! •• Combine all ingredients in a 14oz squeeze bottle and voilà! Let me know once you've tried it, would love your feedback! :) •• HOW DO YOU SHAMPOO? I would be curious to know what, if anything you mix into your shampoo already! •• Hope to hear from you soon, have a WONDERFUL weekend! •• 📸: @danieljrigdon •• #naturalbeauty #naturallynourishing #bajabasics #jojoba #jojobaoil #organiclife #holistic #holistichealth #healthyhair #shampoo #diy #coconut #coconutmilk
